Meet the Give Team

Wright Thurston

Give Founder

Faith Thurston

Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

As the CEO leader of the Give Blockchain, Faith Thurston is passionate about giving. Traveling around the world, Faith has seen firsthand the benefits that come from even the smallest amount of help offered to those in need. From Fiji to Thailand, and then Africa, Faith participated in campaigns that bring global awareness to improve conditions for those in need. Faith remembers a powerful lesson learned at age 17 while serving those who had so little: giving is a lifestyle not a choice. Visiting different foreign countries and as a CNA for an assisted living facility, Faith saw how simple acts of kindness can rescue and bring positive change to those who need it. With these experiences, Faith passionately has embraced this idea that collectively giving to others makes our world a better place. Giving a little girl a life by rescuing her from sex endangerment, helping a family have clean water, and providing a way for other projects to be funded are just a few of the ways Give can change the world. With vivacious energy and determination, Faith Thurston is leading the way for others through Give. Giving is a lifestyle that is easily supported through the Give Blockchain.

Tiafau Purcell

Tiafau Purcell was born and raised in Laie, Hawaii and now resides in Salem, Utah. Moving from the Pacific Islands to the Mountain West at a young age, Tiafau learned to adapt quickly to cultural and environmental differences. Growing up in a bilingual and Polynesian home also helped Tiafau to gain a greater appreciation for languages and culture. Tiafau lived and served as a missionary for two years in El Salvador where his love of languages and cultures helped him serve the local people on a more personal level. He saw firsthand the poverty that many live in and how service can change a person’s life. Tiafau traveled to Mexico and Haiti, visiting orphanages and rebuilding schools. Tiafau also traveled to China and Hong Kong, England and Scotland, and Germany and surrounding countries. Seeing just part of the world has helped shape his perspective on living with purpose and helping others to do the same.

Tiafau joins the Give Blockchain team as the VP of Engineering, bringing years of experience from multiple startups, leading efforts in product and design. Tiafau is excited to be working on blockchain technology that will support organizations doing good around the world. Building upon blockchain and helping others through charity organizations is the dream job.
